As an occasional punter, I have been frustrated (in every interpretation of the word) by girls that don't show.

This has happened to me twice in the last 6-months. Both were incall for independent at a private house. The enquiries were via email and confirmed via phone. On arrival, the house appeared empty. No response to doorbell, knocking or telephone.

I was especially annoyed on the second occasion as I had travelled some distance to a place called Swadlincote in the middle of nowhere (well Derbyshire). I even waited for her in my car on a freezing cold New Year's day on the off chance that she would turn up late. I tried to talk to her the next day; I received no apology, an idiotic excuse and the phone banged down in my ear.

The point is: there is no facility to write reports on say Punternet as no money was exchanged thus Galahad will not make public this information that would be valuable to other Punters.

I would be interested to know what Punters and WGs think.

I appreciate Service Providers must also get irritated by Punters not turning up.

It is totally unacceptable on both side ie either punter or WG not calling to cancel

All it takes is a quick phone call/text and everybody is happy

Having refused other bookings to see a new punter it really angers me when they don't turn up

Some people have strange ways of amusing themselves at others expense/time

My feelings exactly. Problems crop up for wg's and punters, and when they do a timely apology defuses ill-feeling in the vast majority of cases.

If either party believes they don't have to bother, that it's just tough luck if they don't honour an arrangement, it's nothing more than a demonstration of arrogance and a lack of even basic manners.

The problem described to me, by a wg, was that 'no shows'/ unreliability were the bane of the industry. However, there is little anyone can do other than avoid the guilty party in future times.

Recently I arranged on a semi spur of the moment thing to contact and arrange a incall.

Because it was a short notice booking and my first time, she gave me her aroad/postal code but no house number.

Arrived more or less on time.

Called her to get her house nuber..

"That number is currently unavailable..."

Called again "no signal"

Mean while she tried to call me...

so we were I guess 50 metres apart but unable to meet up...

Such a disappointment

A while ago there was a forum set up by one of the ipswich girls, so that peeps could post about timewasters (bothways) but nobody posted so it fell by the wayside!

It would be a good thing to set up again! Maybe something for the punternet admin to think about?

it is so annoying on our side when a client doesn't turn up like Linda said it doesn't take much to make a quick call or even a text if they can't make it.. Also another annoying thing is when a new girl wants to start she swears she will be in you publicise her loads & she doesnt show that is really frustrating because then your short that day and she has just vanished never to be heard from again.. Luckily that has not happened for a while ** fingers crossed!**

Sometimes you dont want to know if the escort is not going to arrive, I once had an overnight booked, and at 8pm the lady said she was on her way, an hour later i got a call from reception to say that my friend had phoned to say she was knocked down and was in hospital, but not too badly.

I had a few overnights with this lady and knew a bit about her, and was genuinely concerned.

Next morning unable to get in touch with the escort via phone, I went to the hospital to see her, and was told that no such person was admitted, and no road accident patients were accepted that evening.

......................................................................................................

On another occassion, I travelled quite a distance to see a lady, and was told to phone on arrival at a set time, only to be told they had a dentist appoinment but would be there in 20 minutes, 40 minutes later I was informed they were on there way, and 30 minutes later they were able to confirm they were in the area, needless to say, the 3 hour booking was cut short to 1 hour by me, due to time wasted waiting, and the escort had the cheek to ask for some extra money to cover her time for the two hours cancelled, if she had been on time I would have gone ahead with the 3 hour booking, so it was her fault I was kept waiting for over an hour.

Never had anything like that happen but I have on several occasions phoned numbers in response to adverts and have never been able to get any reply despite leaving contact details etc. And the same thing has happened on a number of occasions when the advert has been repeated. What has happened in these cases? some of those adverts cost £3-400 pcm to run!!

A little like EU's example I was once late for an appointment due to unexpected road closures (I'd allowed 30 minutes for a 1 mile drive plus smarten up which would usually take around 5 mins total). Didn't have hands free but was parking up as chap was ringing from front door. I rang him back (so 1 minute after appointment time), apologised said I'd be there within 5 as was just locking car etc which was in same place he'd parked his car. I took a short cut to get to my front door in that time (3 minutes past and less than 2 mins after speaking on phone) he was gone.

This was on one of those rare occasions I did give my door number to someone I'd not met before. I had also cut short/turned down something in my personal life for that meeting, had really rushed and was completely miffed. I suppose he presumed I was stringing him along.

I agree with Linda, it is not fair for a client or a girl to no show...! If it only takes moments to arrange the booking, then it would take just as long to cancel the booking.!:)

I think we have to remember that accidents and illness do happen, and these have to be taken into consideration, id rather the escort was able to give a full attention to my booking, then to just accept the booking and give a service when she was ill, or had her mind elsewhere and not able to give a service that was advertised.

Truth is at times never an easy thing, but if the escort is not well, or the booking has to be cancelled by the punter, then we all deserve a second chance, I have had to cancel at short notice before, so lets remember this when we get the call that says the booking will not be confirmed.

Sorry for sounding presumptuous, but did you really do your research into the lady? Did she have alot of positive reports? Did you even find her on an unmentionable website where there are alot of timewasters?

I'd be interested to know, because I've never been let down, but then again that's partly due to the amount of research I do prior to bookings.

I dont think it matters where the lady advertise's, I was once let down from a lady on Northern Angels, which has a great reputation, the lady herself had over 100 succesfull fr's, some of which were from me!, and I have had many succesfull bookings from ladies who use A/work.

No matter how much research someone does, the law of average's in time will catch up, and for some reason you will find yourself wondering whom else is available....always have a backup plan.

I have been let down by 3 ladies in the past 2 years.(one very badly). As no money changed hands it is not possible to do a punternet report on these 3. I really think that Galahad should rethink the rules as regards this. Other correspondents have, I know, said the same. Surely it is in the interests of everyone for these people to be shown up? I think the ladies on this forum will agree as well because it gives the profession a bad name

But, with good research, I'd be fairly confident saying that the number of letdowns would be greatly reduced. It's like saying that you make your own luck.

Thanks for reply Sumodan. I am not sure what you mean by research. However, this lady has a very professional entry on the other site. I had spoken to her previously (not made a booking) and found her to be very pleasant. Her profile was exactly what I was looking for and the price was OK. I don't trust reports other than on Punternet.

If we Punters only visited girls with exceptional feedback, the industry would come to a grinding halt within a few years as all new Providers would be out of business.

When you spend a hundred quid on something non-sex related, how much research does the average person undertake. In any event, I am not buying a car, house, whatever - It was New Year's Day, I was feeling randy and she looked the business. By the time I sit there doing the research as you suggest - I would be none the wiser and the shop would be shut.

Thanks for other replies especially Escortuser's first sentence not answered by Sumodan.

To be fair, I don't think Escortuser was asking a question, although in response, there is a reliance on luck. It depends on what type of punter you are, as there are sooooo many different types of punters. For me, I don't have much money, so I need to ensure that if it being spent on punting, it stands a "better" chance of success. The ONLY way I can think of, is by researching. Yes, that means I tend not to use new providers, but other punters will.

Of course, what you say is absolutely right, but my only point is that with some research (I didn't know how much you had done), it is possible to minimalise the risk. However, alot depends on other factors, and yes, you might have gotten really unlucky.

It's a tough one, and that you received a discourteous response means that I agree that there should be a facility to report this and highlight this. A service provider is exactly that, and the quality of service should be good for all customers.

I remember once I drove for miles to some little village out in the sticks for an overnighter, rang her when I was 5 mins away (I had previously texted her that morning to check it was still on) no answer, rang her door bell when I got there as mobile phone reception was a little patchy, only to hear some other bugger getting his end away inside!.

It wouldn't have been so bad except I had already made my excuses to everyone about where I was going and what I was doing so couldn't really go home... rescued the situation slightly as there was an Indy I had previously seen in the next city that was free so managed to get a hotel room and a nice visit but very frustrating all the same.
